Imageboards are only a type of internet forum. Do you think a new type could be made? What features would it have?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



uhhh, a videoboard… I guess?


Reddit is literally the most popular internet forum whether we like it or not.


i remember there was an "audioboard" called audiochan, but the head admin shut it down for some reason.
the source code is on github if anyone wants to revive it:


That sounds very gimmicky but is interesting.


Most ordinary people these days want a slick user interface with lots of smooth edges, curves, and plain colors with a corporate memphis art style. Importantly, they want something that feeds their narcissism and allows them to express their identity through an avatar and a bunch of friends with all this including their irl info. Lastly, they are actually profitable tech companies whereas imageboards often run at a loss and are just community projects, so there's no way you'd get financing for an internet forum to compete with social media.

> I don't think there'll be a mainstream internet forum, ever,
2channel, the grandaddy of all chan sites, was as mainstream as Reddit in Japan and the country's biggest internet community until it split in 2014. At one time, it was the biggest site on the internet and it was an anonymous textboard/BBS.

All I can think of is an anonymous version of Reddit with the kind of attitude to moderation you see on some of the better imageboards. But it would still have to have that memphis art style and have the look and feel of a Silicone Valley tech company.

I doubt imageboards or internet forums will ever be as big as they used to be and anonymous 2chan/4chan type sites are on the way out. Vast majority of gen Z just don't trust those places and see them negatively.

I paid 2000 bucks for one of those back in the day and I can’t even replace the fucking battery. You have to somehow remove the peeling and cum stained alcantara without ripping it (ifixit couldn’t do it), and then you have to remove every component because the battery is connected UNDER the motherboard, which is a lot harder said than done considering that every connector goes under its own spot welded RF shield. That probably means that the fcc is going to take away your newly repaired laptop once you start it up.

It has a 0 repair ability score for a reason



My brother in Christ, why are you promoting misinformation? It's no harder than replacing the LCD in an older pre-retina Mac, all you've got to do is use a heat gun and craft knife.


That is to say the repairability score is a meme based on consumer backlash to closed systems (otherwise ifixit wouldn't be selling battery replacements and scoring the job as medium dificulty).

Its pretty much honey pots and stuff.
All the real shit is invite only and R really hard to get onto so all the motherfuckers talking about darknet shit R mostly talk about random bullshit. So unless u have access to an invite only site u wont find anything at all


hello, where do you get that pic from ?. is it a vgame ? what is the name ?


If you're asking that question you shouldn't be looking at the Dark Web. Learn how to grow your own and source your seeds from your dealer/friend you are already buying weed from or better yet don't break the law.

Any recommended sites/tools for easily making my own 4chan-style imageboard for free?


File: 1672852695516.jpg (14.92 KB, 280x280, 1671633462547-0.jpg)

for free your best shot is gonna be self-hosted on an old pc, using mySQL. vichan (what comfychan is based on) as well as lainchan are both open source on github, so they're recommended. also since you're asking the question to begin with, i'd just go with ubuntu desktop for the host server, its not ideal for professional use but the gui will make it easier for you
landchad.net also has some good resources on self hosting.
note that it won't be 100% free as you'll have to buy a domain, unless you're fine with the site just being your ip address, not a problem if its just friends but for public use thats not a great idea.


i should also note, the reason i recommend self hosting is that i haven't personally seen any 100% free webhosting services, but also i haven't looked into it so fuck me i guess

I fucking hate fang companies.
Most of them are pretty much cartoon supervillain conglomerates.

I respect google because despite all of their spyware, data collecting, lawsuit worthy bullshit, they still put out good quality products such as android os and their amazing suite of tools such as docs, slides, drive, calendar, keep etc.

But the rest of these companies just put out bullshit, such as Microsoft with the downfall of windows.

What is the best window manager for Arch linux. I've always been interested in ricing but have never fully gotten into it.
I have always been drawn to dwm for some reason.
If you got any recomendations on ricing or windows managers that would be highly appreciated .


File: 1671713092326.jpg (172.1 KB, 1065x698, ezgif-1-5666de6387.jpg)

i3 is by far the most popular when it comes to showing off, closely followed by other pretentious tiling window managers.
I personally love NsCDE's lainpilled aesthetics, but ricing is supposed to be personal and unique, so i can't really give you any advice. Look at all of the options offered to you and make your choice. Remember: looks are always cooler than functionality.


i like awesomewm, it's the best

I live in a CIA prison. A nigger runs my prison. In prison, the nigger tries to torment me. We can take away his knives by confessing, every day. In about 2000, I masturbated fantacizing about my niece, Lani. She looks like Star Trek Seven of Nine! In 1985, at my sister's wedding, I stuck my crotch on the hot tub drain because it kinda sucked. In 1985, I tried to get a dog to lick my dick. From 1998-2003, I fantacized about leading a Catholic army like Dune, of Mexicans or Brazilians? That was dumb because they're niggers. In 2003, I played tag with a black girl about 7-years-old. She reached for my crotch. In high school, in the library, Carlos and I said 'juicy' or 'toxic' as a way of evaluating girls. In 1988, I cheated on my SAT by talking in the hall during the break – two problems. On 9/9/1999, I killed a CIA nigger on purpose with my car. :-) In 1982, when I was 12, I babysat Kevin's kids. I changed a diaper because I thought that was being professional. In 1975, when I was about age five, my brother, Keith, put my penis in a vacuum. In 1977, when I was about age seven, my brother, Danny, got me high on gas fumes and we sucked each other's dicks. Dr. Tsakalis had an oddly round ass. Paul Keck at Xytec had an oddly round ass. Distracting? At about age five, Jay Weinrick and I touched dicks to each other's assholes.

For discussing software minimalism.
>What is computing minimalism?
- Write programs that do one thing and do it well.
- Write programs to work together.
- Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

- Lower memory footprint
- Better maintainability
- Higher scalability

Minimalism should be the standard, not the outlier. Most people don't need overly vague libraries that can solve every possible use case, they need a simple solution that can do everything it's designed to do easily.

A lot of significant open source software could be split into multiple seperate installs. Stuff like ffmpeg is pure bloat; fight me. 90 percent of those tools are never going to get used and instead will just waste space on someones harddrive in an era where public repos and internet connections are getting faster day by day.

Torrent some books or vids on how to make your own website bro.
Pirating stuff today is piss-easy, you can go to one of the most kept-up-to-date libgen domains: https://libgen.is/, or go to zlib.
Lainchan's more tech centered or 4cuck's /g/ has something to help you get going.
If you don't want to buy a domain, you can locally host it.
The rest is up to you bro.

Webmaster here. If you don't have programming experience, I recommend you read up on some html, css, and sql tutorials first before either designing a simple prototype on paper then making it into a prototype with a future proof database backend OR taking an existing deviantart clone from github and over time adding features, security, and a unique site identity, very much like this website. You can also use WordPress, but I'm afraid that's not going to scale very well from what I've seen.

As for hosting, simply plug an old, power efficient computer or a raspberry pi into wired internet and power in some dark corner of your home and install apache+dependencies on it through ssh. Done.

And make sure to think of an original name and buy the domain name before publishing it to the internet, but not before setting up cloudflare so you can't get ddosed. The latter is an absolute necessity.

When you're finally ready to go live, search up your modem's port forwarding instructions on the internet and forward the servers ip on port 80. Your website should be hosted on your home's ip address.

It's an honor to finally be the one helping others create their site.

Not op.
Are there any alternatives to this? And theoretically how expensive would it be to buy and configure some reverse proxies that do the same thing? (Altho obviously on a much smaller scale.)

>forward the servers ip on port 80

Wouldn't that mean it's only http? Not https? I know https isn't just which port you use, but now days, can you even get away with not using https, unless you're hosting on tor?


Cloudfare is literally free no matter how big the site as long as you don’t want support.
Cloudfare will do https for you far easier.

The Logitech g19 is the absolute peak of keyboard technology and you can’t convince me otherwise.

I hate those mechanical keyboard with a burning passion; they’re loud, deep (and thus slow), and feel absolutely horrible, like a button in mashed potato.

All of them look identical, and the g19 was a glimpse of a future we never got. There is absolutely no other peripheral on earth that looks cooler than this keyboard, except for maybe the g502

I was wrong, you're not a normie; YOU'RE BATSHIT INSANE!


I really only have a problem with non mechanical keyboards that try to mimic the mechanical keyboard feel. Those are annoying and cheap feeling.


I disagree. The ornata provides the best of both worlds if you insist on tactile feedback. It's short and has to be bottomed out like a membrane, along with its existing pressure curve, but adds a tactile mechanical bit


I don't really see it but that's okay. That's why we have different keyboards.

Yo guys, so my probation ended and I have no record. Thank god too I got in trouble as a minor for my involvement with anonymous charged with hacking under the CFAA. I havent touched a computer in years I want to get back into security shit and go legit. Shit sucks but whatever I will do what I have to. Can you guys give me some resources /g/ on 4 chan sucks ass just people circle jerking their paychecks and some fake ass wannabe hackers. point me in the right direction guys all I have now is a shitty laptop with 1.4ghz CPU and 4GB ram. What are some IDEs I can run with these specs, is python still a great language I am super behind put on minor probation but shit lasted until 25 cant complain but still want to get back on that horse you know. This show kept me so entertained




>what are some ides i can run
your best bet is (neo)vim, emacs, or any terminal based text editor.
>is python a great language
i don't know how to code, if i were to pick a language it would probably be a lower-level language like c.
python has virus modules (not in the base install, you have to install them) but any language you're comfortable with is fine.


thanks guys will keep these in mind. I tried running VScode but my low end specs really had that shit lagging.

So, as a follow up to my last post, I disco0vered that my parents had neutered my GPU when they got me my laptop. Games actually use up around 50% of my GPU, but since it was neutered, I couldn't do shit.

Any of y'all been fucked like this?


that sucks dude, you could try debloating windows by running this script in powershell in administrator mode: "iwr -useb https://git.io/debloat|iex"

that might give you a bit of performance boost.

github link here: "https://github.com/Sycnex/Windows10Debloater"


What does “neutering” a gpu mean? Is it on the os level?

You can try install a linux live usb to check and maybe use it normally.


Thanks, I'll check it out.

The GPU had a setting that meant that every app (including the OS shit) used the same portion of the GPU. He also installed tons of music shit I'm still finding. The problem's been resolved, I just need to manually give priority to my games in task manager.
